Parker Junior High ‘Tech Ninjas’ take robot to competition

The District 153 PTA will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 9, to take a position on the upcoming March 15 referendum question. The meeting is at James Hart School, 183rd and Morgan in Homewood.

The school board approved a referendum asking voters to extend the current tax levy another seven years.

Voters approved a 2011 referendum that enabled the district to sell $7 million in bonds. The ballot question in March will ask voters to approve the sale of up to $9 million in bonds. The money will be used to help the district cover expenses. The district has seen a drop in revenues due to constant decreases in state funding and a decline in property values.

The meeting is open to the public, but only PTA members will be eligible to vote on the association’s position.
